Replacing typed dataset column names with untyped names

After moving a webreference from one project to another, I could no longer refer to the name of a column in the dataset by specifying myDS.MyTable.FooBarColumn.ColumnName Instead I had to resort to the less desirable (but still valid) "FooBar"

Now how do you make that change throughout a project without getting CTS in the process? Simple - use VS.NET's extended replace with regular expressions: Find what: (<:a+\.)+{:a+}Column\.ColumnName
Replace with: "\1"
